He Had No Shirt
Once upon a time . . .
"A king was suffering from a painful ailment and was told that the only cure for him was to find a contented man,
get his shirt, and wear it night and day. So messengers were sent through the
king's realm in search of such a man, with orders to bring back his shirt. Months passed. After a thorough search of the country, the messengers returned without the shirt.
"Did you find a contented man in all my realm?' the king asked "Yes, O King, we found one, just one in all the realm." "Then why did you not bring back his shirt?" the king demanded. "Master, the man had no shirt." (Calm My Anxious Heart, Linda Dillow)
